    'Handwriting is good for us', argues Philip Hensher, 'It involves us in a relationship with the written word which is sensuous, immediate and individual'. In his witty and highly entertaining defence of handwriting, Hensher discusses teachers of handwriting, theorists and graphologists, goose quills, nibs and the Cristal Bic, and he makes a passionate case for continuing to scribble notes, write letters, chew Biros, and 'enhance the quality of our lives by going for the slow option'.
